This is a lovely Remington Quiet- Riter typewriter in good working order . Remington launched this model in 1955 to compete in the portable market and this model was made well into the 1960's . This one was made in Great Britain and is in a great industrial grey colour with dark green keys , carriage knobs and space bar . It works very well and is in a nice general condition with only a few very minor marks and scratches to the metal body mainly at the back corners .It also comes with a photo copy of an original instruction manual with all its features and tips on touch typing. It has the Remington logo in silver on the front and the details of where it was manufactured to the back .
We have fitted a brand new ribbon as well as giving it a service, clean and re lubricating it , so its all ready for you to start typing that novel .
GR1 typewriter ribbons can be purchased from many online suppliers or we can supply you with new ribbons when required . With this machine you will just need to rewind the new ribbon on to the original metal spools.They generally cost around $10 including postage . However a ribbon will last you a long time . To give you an idea , in an office environment with someone using a typewriter professionally a ribbon would last them around 3 months .
It comes in a case which closes with a front clasp and has a handle . The case is in a good condition with some marks , scratches as well as discolouration mainly to the outside .
The typewriter measures 30 cms across by 31 cms by 13 cms high ,so although classed as a portable it is quite heavy .
This is a nice solidly made and robust " Madmen " style typewriter in a good working order .
Delivery anywhere within Australia is included in the price .
